[Post-Dubstep:] Adventure Club & Crankdat – Next Life (ft. Krewella)


Dubstep pioneers Adventure Club have teamed up with producer Crankdat and female songstress and DJ, Krewella for the energy filled track, Next Life. Elements of dubstep, future house and bass collide in this uplifting “post-dubstep” track with each artist bringing their unique flair to the mix. Opening with soft melodies that transition into air guitar like synths and layers of  sound makes for an interesting composition.

Krewella delivers magical vocals over Adventure Club’s one-of-a-kind soundscape; one that feels familiar but is also different enough from the dubstep that made them popular in the first place. The drop and the bassier elements of the track seem to be Crankdat’s doing, but I could be dissecting it wrong. Regardless, the trio deliver a powerful hit that successfully changes up a familiar format.

I’ll be waiting in the next life…

[Dance/House:] Jauz & Crankdat – ID (I Hold Still) (Original Mix)


[Dance/House]

ID (I Hold Still) – Jauz & Crankdat

I (I, I –) I hold still, I hold still…

Jauz has been everywhere as of late. Dropping hits on Soundcloud, collaborating with many other DJs and producers and getting play from Rezz at Atlanta’s 2017 Shaky Beats Festival. 

Check out the dance-house collab between Jauz and producer Crankdat. “ID (I Hold Still)” is an energetic, yet chill ride through retro sped-up female vocal samples, a la “Retro City” of Adventure Club, but much more intricate and far less mainstream.

The bass and synths combine well for a charged dance-pop, almost trance single up until the drop where dirty and grimy bass combine rounding out the song’s trap/post-dubstep vibe. I may still be learning about boy-wonder DJ, Jauz, but I feel this is probably not the type of song he typically does, making I Hold Still all the more epic. I can only imagine hearing this live….
